An exhibition for the anniversary of the victory in the war against the fascists runs at the Andriyaka Watercolor School, Moscow.
The exhibition “Posters of the Great Patriotic War 1941-1945” includes war posters of 1941-1945 and other artifacts of that period, provided by the Dmitrov Kremlin Museum.
During the World War II there was an intense propaganda of patriotism agitation.
This phenomenon was even named the "third frontline". The battle for the spirit of the people largely decided the outcome of the war. Poets, artists, and writers created anti-Nazi leaflets, posters and other agitprop. In their works, they sought to oppose the Soviet people to the invaders.
Visitors to the exhibition will see works by I. Toidze, M. Nikolayev, J. Lerner, I. Doronina, V. Prager, A. Kokorekin. Special attention is deserved to the posters of the Kukryniksy group, who became famous for their caricatures and satirical images of enemies.
Where: Sergei Andriyaka Watercolor School at the address 17, Gorokhovsky Lane, next to Kurskaya metro station, Moscow.
